Description

Your lawn needs mowing and your mower doesn't work. Now what? You look next door and see your neighbor's lawnmower. When he's not looking, you grab his lawnmower and start mowing your lawn. Try to avoid being caught as you mow up to 16 lawns while avoiding your flower beds. Your dog can help you keep that pesky neighbor away while you finish your work.

Trivia

Cancelled Spectrum version

Issue 7 of Your Spectrum magazine claimed that "A lot less 'bovver' than writing completely new programs is to convert existing ones to run on different machines", going on to announce a forthcoming Spectrum conversion of the game, which was never released. Perhaps a case of "I fought the lawn, but the lawn won".
